Anxiety

Feeling a certain level of anxiety over big stressors or certain life events is totally normal. However, if you find that your fear or worry does not go away and, in fact, gets worse over time, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling and often passes quickly, while severe anxiety can seriously affect your day-to-day life. If you are finding your anxiety unmanageable, can’t identify the cause of your anxious feelings or if you are suffering from physical symptoms (such as heart palpations, fatigue, sweaty hands, upset stomach, or insomnia), it may be time to get help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s anxiety specialists today.

I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to address anxiety from different sides. It can be completely overwhelming to not be able to see what is coming in our life. Worrying about those we love is fine, until it is uncontrollable and effecting other parts of our lives.

Anxiety is part of the human experience. There is no one who doesn't experience anxiety at least some of the time. For those of us that experience anxiety that is out of proportion with our comfort level, there are a great many tools available to us. Body and mindfulness-based practices are usually the most helpful, but sometimes old fashioned cognitive stuff works well too. I treat anxiety by both reducing stress in the present, as well as rewiring the old experiences.

— Melissa Walker, Therapist in Whitesboro, TX
